Gibbons mulling car insurance cameras

(AP) – A top aide says Gov. Jim Gibbons is taking another look at having a company set up a network of roadway cameras to catch vehicle insurance scofflaws.

Gibbons aide Lynn Hettrick says it might be a money-maker to hire Chicago-based InsureNet as part of a budget-cutting package offered for the special session Feb. 23.

Officials say cameras can quickly verify whether vehicles are insured and registered.

The Legislature rejected a similar proposal last year.

The Department of Motor Vehicles says it just upgraded its verification program to catch insurance scofflaws.
